Did George die, leaving your gran a widow and free to marry again?  If so, you can probably find his death on 1837online.
Godden in East Sussex, mainly Hastings area.
Richards in Lea, Gloucestershire, then London.
Williamson in Leith, Vickers in Nottingham.
Webb in Bildeston and Colchester.
Wesbroom in Kirby le Soken.
Ellington in Harwich.
Park, Palmer, Segar and Peartree in Kersey.

ive tried 1837online but as i dont have a year in which he died im stumped!
he was definately alive when he split with my gran.
she mentioned something about her being left destitute and that it was in the paper (local paper i guess) he was living at 18 peerless st shoreditch on the 1901 census & i know they lived at 19 shepherdess walk shoreditch in 1908 as its on my aunts birth cert. but after that nothing.

Hi sooze ;D

I know from experience that this is a difficult nut to crack!

My great grandparents, George and Caroline Fisher, parted company around 1880.

Although I have been able to fully research Caroline, and the 4 chlidren, George remains a mystery.

I think I have him on the 1881 census living as a boarder in Hull - but can't really prove it. Looking for his death is a nightmare as he has such a common name and I have no idea where or when he died. I did send for a certificate of a George Fisher who died in Hull but it was not 'my' George

George is recorded on all the marriage certificates as 'alive' but, as we know, this information cannot always be trusted.

I wish you luck in your search - let me know if you have a brilliant idea which locates your George Reed - it might work for me too!
